Waging his one-man war on the world of organized crime, ruthless vigilante-hero Frank Castle sets his sights on overeager mob boss Billy Russoti. After Russoti is left horribly disfigured by Castle, he sets out for vengeance under his new alias: Jigsaw. With the “Punisher Task Force” hot on his trail and the FBI unable to take Jigsaw in, Frank must stand up to the formidable army that Jigsaw has recruited before more of his evil deeds go unpunished. Th new “The Punisher” film is set in New York, where Castle runs up against a mobster. Ray Stevenson takes over the Castle roll from Thomas Jane. “The Punisher 2″ marks the third big screen incarnation for “The Punisher” movie series, which originated in a comic book about Frank Castle, a Marine-turned-vigilante who is driven by a desire to avenge the murder of his family after they witness a gangland killing. The first time “The Punisher” saw the big screen was in 1989 film that starred Dolph Lundgren and then into a 2004 pic, entitled “The Punisher,” that starred Thomas Jane.
